Charcoal Fuel Vent Canister!
Charcoal Fuel Vent Canister!


Does anyone know of a very small charcoal canister that I could fit to a 1/4" gas tank vent line hose to keep the smell out of the garage? Thanks for your suggestions!

Put a "U" in the hose with the open end pointing down. The vapors get trapped in the top part of the "U" while still allowing it to vent like you want. The hose needs to be higher than the tank also, but that usually isn't a problem.

That worked for me.

Is your engine carbureted? If so a lot of the smell is likely coming from fuel evaporating from the fuel bowls.
